The Faculty of Social and Political Sciences Universitas Muhammadiyah Makassar in collaboration with Asia Pacific Society for Public Affairs (APSPA) organize the International Conference on Ethics in Governance (ICONEG 2016), on 19-20 December 2016 in Makassar, Indonesia under the topic of “Intersecting Law, Religion, and Politics” on 19-20 December 2016. This conference aims to provide a platform for scholars, researchers and practioners to share their insight, ideas and experiences.
In this era, the heavy burden of civilization is a narrative about ethics, especially in relation to social society issues and nationality. Cross cutting issues such as Cultural, law and society problems, character building and education, governance ethics problem, global economic crisis, and development crisis, have emerged and need to be responded quickly. In order to benefit from the opportunities and to manage the threats, understanding and cooperation among actors whether on international, national or local level are required to deal with those cross cutting issues.
There are 214 papers from various topics including Business Ethics and CSR, Character Building and Education System, Culture Law and Society, Global Politics and Governance, Islamic Studies, Local Politics and Governance, Local Wisdom and Ethics, and Public Policy and Administration. 116 papers are selected to go through a strict peer-reviewed process, and these papers are published in conference proceedings.
We would like to thank the organizing committee and the members of reviewers for their kind assistances in reviewing the papers. We would also extend our best gratitude to Rector of Universitas Muhammadiyah Makassar, Dean of Faculty of Social and Political Science Universitas Muhammadiyah Makassar, especially to Prof. Dr. Amporn W.
